Hey guys, Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw three dimensional box art. So the first thing you'd want to do is you want to do a line just at the top like that. I'm going to do it actually just a little bit bigger so that you can see. You're going to do two lines that connect in the front and just going to make a square just like that. And then along the side you're going to make one line kind of going up at an angle and another line that's following that exact same angle and connect those two. That's going to be the side of the box and then you're going to do another one that follows that same angle on the other side and then you're going to connect that onto the back. Now we have our basic outline of our box. If you want, maybe it's a cardboard box you can draw some flaps by doing an angle there and another one like that and another one at the top and of course, if you do that, you're going to have to erase this line because that's going to be behind. There we go, just like that. And you can do another one on this side by going up just like that, up like that and connecting. And then if you want, another line down the sides because you maybe can see the inside of the box a little bit and if you want to do some shading you can do that as well. Some lines just to show the ground there, maybe there's a little bit of a shadow underneath, just like that and you can kind of just flare it out. A lot of times when you're doing shadows, it's going to be the darkest around the bottom edge and the closest it gets to the object it's going to be darker and the furtherest away it's going to be a lighter shade of shadow so I'm just going to kind of go like that. And there you go guys, that's how you do your three dimensional box art. So good luck and stay creative.
